WWE 2K15 is the 2014 edition of the WWE 2K series of games published by 2K sports. Focusing on the “new generation”, the game places a heavy emphasis on more relaxed gameplay, as opposed to the arcade-like gameplay of the previous games. There are a slew of new features in this installment of the franchise that serve to overall bring about a more realistic edge to the gameplay to emulate actual WWE matches. The pace of the matches has been slowed, and the game features a brand new stamina bar. WWE 2K15 also features a presentation overhaul, a new MyCAREER and 2K Showcase game modes. The game’s soundtrack has been curated personally by John Cena.
The game’s three-tier stamina meter controls the pace of the match, with each move performed by the player draining a part of the stamina meter. In the first tier, the player’s wrestler can perform moves with ease, while in the second, the player wrestler begins to slow down, while in the third tier, the player wrestler is completely exhausted. The player wrestler will be unable to perform their finishing movie if the stamina point reaches too low. The game also features a completely revamped submission system, which uses a two-part circular gauge. “Charged Finishers” allow the player to perform taunt and finisher combos by having them blend seamlessly into a single animation. Fighting styles and skill sets have been brought in so that the game’s wrestlers are identical to their real-life counterparts. For instance, giants like Big Show cannot climb the turnbuckle.
The game features an updated roster of 75 playable characters, and marks the game debuts of WWE superstars Corey Graves, Sting, Lana, Erick Rowan, Xavier Woods, Rusev, Zeb Colter and Bo Dallas. The game’s MyCAREER mode is similar to the mode from NBA 2K15. Players can create a superstar in the Creative Suite and trace the progress of their WWE career, from the WWE Performance Center to the main event at Wrestlemania, after which the player superstar’s career is seen 15 years into the future, where the player superstar is slated to appear in one final match. The mode also features a morality system in which the player can choose to play as a face or a heel. A 5-star rating system ranks matches based on their pacing, momentum and technique.

WWE 2K15 had the opportunity to build and improve on the failures of its predecessor but instead forged its own legacy of disappointment and frustration. A great looking package that lacks substance and conviction
